Vintage Crochet Baby Blanket


Vintage Crochet Baby Blanket


So I have been dying to show this off...
I love love it...
and am soooo proud of it.
I finished it a month ago as a gift for my sister-in-law Annes new baby,
Hazel Rory Alme McDonald = sooooo cute!

I have been really into vintage crochet lately.
Really.
I had a specific blanket in mind that I wanted to make.
I internet searched for days,
and couldn't find a pattern even close to what I wanted.
sooo..
I made one up, which is a first for me,
and it turned out perfect,
and I'm almost done with a pattern,
and it will be up on etsy soon.

 Front



Back



I think I love the back more then the front,
the flowers look like little cupcakes.
